Selection ? Spain seeks past glory - SPANISH FOOTBALL 1

Spain the decade will end in the hope of greening the successes of the 2008-2012 cycle. Luis Aragonés paved the way for success with the Euro In Austria and Switzerland. Del Bosque reached the top with The World Cup in South Africa, a milestone of which will be the tenth birthday in July, and the Euro 2012. Then came the snaps in Brazil 2014, Euro 2016, the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the 2019 League of Nations.

Luis Enrique has been chosen to take Spain out of the mud and regain the glory of the Selection. It has a good group and the draw has been conducive. Now we need to confirm the forecasts on the field.

Spain has lived a year because of the situation on the bench. During this stage full of swings and betrays the differences of judgment manifested in the lists and in the alignments of Luis Enrique and Robert Moreno, have been evident. Nine changes are certified between the ‘onces’ most commonly used by one technician.

In fact only match on two players: Sergio Ramos and Rodrigo, that’s what it’s all about. De Gea was the goalkeeper who played the most minutes with Luis Enrique, while Kepa was with Robert. In the same situation there are other footballers who enter competition, such as Inigo Martinez and Albiol or Busquets and Rodri, that with Robert Moreno played more minutes than the middle center of the Barça.

The internationals who played the most with Robert Moreno were, by post, the following: Kepa; Navas, Ramos, Albiol, Bernat; Rodri, Saul, Fabian, Oyarzabal; Rodrigo and Gerard Moreno. On the other, according to the minutes he bestowed, Luis Enrique’s team-type was: De Gea; Sergi Roberto, Sergio Ramos, Inigo Martínez, Gayá; Ceballos, Busquets, Isco; Asensio, Morata and Rodrigo.

It is clear that one and the other coach have different tastes, and so is it while Luis Enrique was 4-3-3, Robert Moreno did it more in 4-4-2.

The Asturian plans to offer the list of 23 players for the Euro next May. You will need to make the decision with the performance of the players in their respective teams, but also according to what they do in the March 26 friendlies versus Germany in the Metropolitan And Sunday 29 of the same month in Amsterdam, compared to Holland. The performance of some internationals under the magnifying glass will depend on Luis Enrique including them in the list of 23. Because to the last two friendly of preparation Spain will already arrive with the final list decided, and sent to the Uefa. Luis Enrique, who will concentrate the national team on May 25th in Las Rozas, will still have time to do the last two tin/check-ins on June’s two friendly, in front of Portugal (June 5, Metropolitan) and Lithuania (June 9, The Sardinero). Then the Euros will arrive.

Spain will debut on Monday, June 15 Sweden, then play on Saturday 20 against Poland and will close on Wednesday 24 thyself to whoever wins the repechage between Bosnia, Ireland, Slovakia and Northern Ireland. The national team will play in San Mames the first three matches of the Euro.
